Raipur, August 15: Raksha Bandhan is not only about the relationship between a brother or sister, but it is also about the emotional bond they both share. In an inspiring incident, Chhattisgarh police constable Kavita Kaushal tied rakhi on her martyr brother Assistant Constable Rakesh Kaushal's gun on Thursday.

Describing the reason for tying rakhi on her brother's gun, Kavita said, as quoted by news agency ANI, "I got employment in Chhattisgarh police in place of my brother. I had requested the department that I want to use the same gun that my brother once used in service. Naxals are coward. I want to join Danteshwari fighters and take revenge for my brother's death."

It is to be known that Kavita's brother Assistant Constable Rakesh Kaushal was martyred in a Naxal ambush in Aranpur along with two other policemen and a DD cameraperson in October 2018. The state government allotted her the same gun her brother used after she was recruited in the police department.
